UPDATE-Basketball Wives former best friends Evelyn Lozada and Jennifer Williams have escalated their twitter beef. The Basketball Wives stars were once inseparable on the popular VH1 reality show however things went down hill by the end of the season three after Jennifer said some unkind words of Chad Ochocinco, Evelyn’s fiance.
In the latest round Jennifer revealed the surprising and petty reason behind their fallout: Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. Jenn told tells S2S magazine,
“Let me tell you what she’s mad over ‘cause this always comes up. She hates the fact that I’m really good friends with NeNe [Leakes], and she hates the fact that me and Mashonda are good friends. I feel like it’s all coming from a place of hurt, and she’s turning it into anger.”
“Why do you care who I’m friends with? Like, that’s ridiculous. I live in New York. You live in Miami. I don’t care who you hang out with. I’m kinda over it because I just feel like I’m at a point at my life where I’m trying to get rid of negative energy,” she said. “To me, I feel like it’s something so minuscule. It’s not like I slept with Chad. It’s not something irreparable. It’s something stupid that you’re mad over. If you really are mad because I have other friends, I think that’s completely ridiculous.
I don’t say anything to her, and she doesn’t say anything to me.” Jennifer goes on to compliment NeNe,
NeNe is such a good person. I don’t think you really find a lot of people in the same business that you bond with because I feel like everyone is so competitive and everybody is so worried about the next person doing more than them, and it’s not like that with her at all. She’s always trying to encourage me. She’s just always trying to uplift me, and I need people like that around me. I love that about her. There’s no jealousy. There’s no competition. We try to complement each other.
Ev certainly wasn’t going to let Jen get the last word – she blasted her on Twitter;
“So Jennifer thinks I’m MADD that’s she’s hanging out with @NeNeLeakes ??? B***h pls! Interview coming soon…. #ItsOnContacts,”
“Tired of this heffa constantly running her mouth to remain relevant! @iamjennifer Let’s talk boo! You will never WIN!,” said Lozada before attacking Jen’s alleged use of colored contacts. “No matter how long u walk around with those purple contacts, u will never be a white girl! #InsecureA**”
Ironically when Royce Reed mentioned Jen’s contacts Evelyn had nothing to add….until now.
Surprisingly Chad stepped in to call a truce and forced his fiance to change her tone.
“The man has spoken ***DROPS MIC***,” wrote Lozada. “RT @ochocinco: @EvelynLozada Do not send another tweet out if it’s not positive.”
